The Underwood Corporation has produced a clever photoplay, to highlight the responsibilities of a competent secretary. The Duties of a Secretary was prompted by a national survey in which business educators were asked what sort of motion picture they felt would make the best contribution toward business training and grooming.
Not content to make a picture which would simply fill curricular needs, the Underwood Corporation has turned out a movie that serves as entertainment as well. It tells the story of a young girl, just hired as a secretary for a real estate broker, who dreams that she does everything wrong on her first day at the office; but she awakes, to report for the job, with all the competence of an experienced secretary at her command. The device is ideal for sustaining interest in the duties of an efficient secretary.
